No kidding. And Rodg made him look like an idiot on national TV. I bet he's getting ripped pretty good by his friends (if he has any).

Great special. I wish they would focus more on different stuff other than the "chip on his shoulder" though.


It's as bad as "walk on mentality" in EVERY Matthews video. Seriously, I almost feel bad for the guy.

"So Clay, you walked on at USC. It's been said you have a walk on mentality."

"Now Clay, you didn't get to start right away. You had to walk on at USC. So you must have a walk on mentality."

"Clay, you're really a testament to hard work, since you had to walk on at USC. Was that walk on mentality a driving force in your success?"

EVERY. INTERVIEW.

My man. Gracias. So awkward when the guy told Aaron he thought he was going to be taller.

some people may see that quick snippet & think ARod is a jerk for saying that to a fan... but honestly that's exactly what i want from all athletes... it was an honest response & not some cliche robotic answer like he has no emotion or something...

i hate that monotone attitude from athletes & appreciate that Rodgers is as honest as they get

He's not a larger than life superstar. He's your everyday guy who just happens to be one of the most amazing QBs of all-time. Always happy to watch some Rodgers coverage.

"Your eyes are even MORE captivating in person."


I would think he'd get creeped out if that fan said that tho. Wink

Yeah, he wasn't a jerk about it, if he wanted to be a jerk he would have made the guy leave and not sign his stuff. Instead he just told him how he felt, that he didn't like that. But how are those the first words out of your mouth to Aaron Rodgers? Who doesn't know how tall he is? What was he expecting, that Rodgers would be like 7-8 feet tall?

Give the guy a break. Football players are built out to be the modern day gladiators. You think of big, strong, hard hitting machines. Now take the guy you look up to the most (hue hue hue) and you're going to build him up in your mind. I'm sure he was a little nervous and didn't actually think about the potential negative reaction with what he said.

You were the guy that said it to him werent you? That was you picking on ole Rodge on 60 minutes... Do a quick 17 second google search and it will tell you he is 6'2.

In fairness to tabbaker, I once watched some members of the Detroit Lions do a local basketball benefit......And as a youth I too was surprised that they had far too much of the appearance of being human......They weren't larger than life like I had formulated in my mind.....I think it's typical to have some sort of let down.....Just my two cents....

Yea but that's as a kid...as an adult can you really still hold a "superhero" mentality about your favorite football players?

You guys need to meet wrestlers in person. When I was 16 or 17 I was 6'2 even and met WWE wrestler KANE. I felt tall at my school, but dude is every bit of 6'11 or 7' in person. A true monster. I have big hands, but shakin the guys hand I felt like a small child with an adult. An experience where expectations were terrifyingly exceeded. You can't appreciate the size until he towers over you. TV does him no justice.

Well, if it's Aaron Rodgers...
